Devon and Cornwall Police have announced that it will once again be running it’s ‘Lift Legend’ scheme. 

The campaign hopes to help more people get home safely after a fun night out. This time of year, many enjoy an evening which includes an acholic drink or two, the Lift Legend campaign partners with licensed premises across the county to give those who stay sober and drive their friends home free soft drinks to show appreciation. 

This year, almost 80 establishments will be taking part over the festive period.  

A spokesperson from Devon and Cornwall Police said: “Drink and drug driving is one of the ‘fatal five’ causes of serious injuries and deaths on roads in South West England.  

“Last winter, Devon and Cornwall Police arrested 952 people for driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Despite years of campaigning the road safety charity Brake reports that December remains a peak month for drink driving-related crashes.”  

Lift Legend started at the beginning of the month and will run until Monday, January 1, 2024. Drivers buying a soft drink in one of the participating venues will receive a voucher to get their second drink free of charge.
